Kingsmead College is founded on consideration and care for others. Service is one of the values of the school. The Kingsmead Service department was established to instill and cultivate active citizenship and to enable students to impact their community in a meaningful way.
Community service is an expectation at Kingsmead College and the Service department therefore provides opportunities for the students to connect and engage with their community through a programme of community engagement. The Service department’s slogan is Give Without Expecting Reward.
The school has developed mutually beneficial relationships with a few NPOs in the inner city. These projects provide the social cohesion the school wants to foster and is beneficial for the organisations as well as the Kingsmead girls.
